List of Activities to do on Your Next Trip to Abu Dhabi - Delightful Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi is a country of many delights. The experiences you can have in this Middle Eastern beauty are diverse. You can go on a desert safari, discover the culture, experience adventure, cheer at a camel race, watch a falcon show and the list goes on.


Desert safari

Get reading for a unique adventure in the sunny deserts of Abu Dhabi. Dune bashing is basically a ride of terror on a 4WD bashing against massive dunes. You can also try a camel trek and end the day admiring the sunset over the Abu Dhabi desert. If you want adventure all round then sand skiing is a must try, if you are a beginner try the gentle slopes and leave the 980 feet high slopes to the experts! Visits to camel farms and Bedouin camps are part of the desert adventure. The day usually ends with good food, shisha and entertainment by proficient belly dancers.


Hot air ballooning

A hot air balloon is your substitute to a magic carpet. A balloon ride, which sets off, from the heart of the desert is one of the greatest adventures one can experience. When you are floating 2000 feet above the ground the sight of the turquoise waters and soft golden sand is breathtaking. There's no better way to do sightseeing in Abu Dhabi than on a hot air balloon.


Get an Arabian massage

An Arabic massage generally lasts up to one and a half hours. Start your experience with a delicious ginger tea and blissful foot massage, expertly applied to pressure points to soothe and relax your senses. Professional massage therapists from Egypt, Tunisia, Turkey or Philippines will expertly use elbows and palms on the pressure points of your body releasing tension and increasing the blood circulation thereby increasing your energy levels. This is the best therapy if you are jetlagged.


Take a walk at the Corniche

Embrace the beauty of the magnificent Abu Dhabi Corniche. A stroll along the Corniche with its perfectly manicured gardens and fountains lined on the sides is one of the best evening experiences. There are trees for shade, play areas and bicycle rentals for the more active crowds. The water is calm in the cornice side and it becomes alive in the evening with jet skiers showing off. You can take a plunge at the public swimming area. Abu Dhabi had plenty of hotels but if you are looking for a unique experience Desert Islands Resort & Spa by Anantara is your best choice.


Camel races

A trip to the camel races will definitely be something to remember. The camels' gallop on custom made racetracks while the spectators' applause and anticipate the winners. It's remarkable to see these gently creatures run at such high speed. The races are usually held during weekends and public holidays.


Falcon shows

Falconry in the Middle East goes back hundreds of years. The Falcon shows are very interesting since the expert trainers show how well the birds are trained to a catch prey and bring it back to the master. These versatile shows should not be missed.
